Really? Is it one of those big, heavy suckers that you could brain someone with? You know, a '70's style ashtray, not a dinky hotel type of today's standards. That would be rather limp. No?
I have to admit that as time is going by I'm beginning to get itchy thinking I ought to have ordered the darn box.

Yeah, especially these last two months with all the E72 TDIH shows I feel a sense of regret every single day that I didn't put in an order for the full-on set. After this year's tax return, I finally paid off my car and my credit card debt, leaving me only with student loan payments. But that's been on my back for like a decade so I just take that for granted.

Anyway, it's always in the back of my mind, "hey, I finally got that credit card balance back down to zero...and I know I said I was gonna lock the card up and throw away the key...and even though I've already got 5 sources for every show...IT's EUROPE 72, MAN! Just go ahead and charge it!" I suspect some day as September approaches I'll have had a couple beers and will go ahead and say to hell with it and put in an order. We'll see. With my luck I'll probably get $400 saved up then my brakes will give out on my car and while they're in there they'll tell me I also need a new fuel pump and a water pump and new tires etc etc etc and I'll wind up paying twice as much as the box set on my damn car.

Anyway, yeah, 5/25/72, great, somewhat underrated Europe performance at the least worthy for it's unique song pairings in the second set jam. Also my birthday show. Well, I was born in 79, but still, you know what I mean.
